WIP Wednesday - Progress on Several Fronts
Monday night I did some of the stitching around these snowmen. There are six snowmen (three at each end of the runner) and only one and a bit left to go for the stitching around the body. Then all six need arms so they are actually holding the things currently just floating on their bellies.
Quiet Play. This is what I took out of my scrap bag one evening. I still need a bunch of other fabrics, so hopefully I'll dig those out of my stash later in the week.
I have my paper foundations all printed and labelled, which will make life easier when I am ready to start sewing all these tiny pieces.
As I was labeling the sections I realized the sections are lettered from A all the way to Q - that's a lot of sections. Then I noticed that some of the sections have 10 or more pieces, which made me wonder, "Just how many pieces are in this block, anyway?" So I tallied them all up.
See that number circled at the top of the paper? Yep. 117 pieces in one 10" block. I don't know who's crazier - Kristy for designing it or those of us who think it's too cute not to make!
I hope to tackle at least a couple of sections of this block before the week is out. We are under a blizzard warning for tomorrow, so maybe that means I'll get a little extra sewing time.
I link to these places.
